Tradition credits Saint Boniface with the invention of the Christmas tree. The Oak of Thor at Geismar was chopped down by Boniface in a stage-managed confrontation with the old gods and local heathen tribes. A fir tree growing in the roots of the Oak was claimed by Boniface as a new symbol. "This humble tree's wood is used to build your homes: let Christ be at the centre of your households. Its leaves remain evergreen in the darkest days: let Christ be your constant light. Its boughs reach out to embrace and its top points to heaven: let Christ be your Comfort and Guide."

If Jesus is a creation or incarnation of God, then in fact, isn't Christianity worshiping the creation and not the creator? He only incarnated once. Once is not never, though. I seriously cannot understand this. I worship the Creator, I just don't know who or what that is.
Luke 2:1 says, "And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed [registered]." Here, 'taxed' means 'to register'.

It is NO coincidence that Sun remains at the lowest point of the sky for 3 days between December 22nd-25th, only to "rise again."
It is of no coincidence that Mithra was crucifed
and is depicted slaying the Bull because Mithra was worshipped during the age of Taurus. Then Moses came around and was angered to find his people worshipping a golden bull statue.
In 2012, we enter the age of Aquarius, the water bearer.
In fact, the Bible states something to the effect of "at the end of this age a man with water will greet you. Follow him into his home." The different signs of the Zodiac are called "houses." Hence, follow him into his home.
12 signs of the Zodiac, plus the Sun. Jesus and his 12 disciples. Mithra and his 12 followers. Hercules and his 12 workers. And so on and so on.
Also note that each sun-God always had a headpiece of some sort that represented the sun's coronoa's. In Jesus' case, it was the crown of thorns.
Nice dude, I also like the hebrew screen name you use, sweet cane eh >? hehe

Also I did not intend to offend as all of you seem very well educated and would utterly smoke me in a debate. Thanks again.
